Marlow Navigation’s Chairman, Mr Hermann Eden has been awarded with a Distinction of Honour by the Kherson Regional Council and Regional Administration in recognition of his and the company’s considerable contribution to the economic development of the region, and in education and training of highly-qualified maritime professionals.

The award was presented on October 13 at the hall of the Kherson Regional State Administration, where Marlow Navigation and Kherson State Maritime Academy (KSMA) signed an agreement to continue cooperation in training and employment of maritime officers.

“It is a privilege to accept this recognition on behalf of Marlow Navigation. As a company, we are proud to be cooperating with KSMA for over a decade now in the training of seafarers and recruitment of cadets,” stated Mr Eden. “Ukraine continues to be the largest provider of deck and engine officers for our company, and we look forward to preserving this collaboration.”

The award presentation and signing followed the inauguration and ceremonial parade of new generation KSMA cadets at the Dnieper Promenade, where President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko also took part. In his address, Ukraine’s Head of the State said:

“Kherson State Maritime Academy is one of the leading centres of maritime education, with exceptional training facilities. The Academy here at Kherson also closely cooperates with international investors. This has provided a platform to bring the quality of KSMA’s training to a global level. It is very important that Chairman of investor company Marlow Navigation, Mr Hermann Eden is present here at today’s event.”

The President added that the fact that a large number of Ukrainians, both male and female, continue to aspire to become cadets, clearly meant that there is firm belief in the traditions and fantastic future of the country’s maritime sector, which will no doubt continue to play a pivotal role in supplying the industry with qualified marine officers. The President noted that many foreign students also study at the academy, further testifying to its international reputation and accreditation.
